HCC bomb threat suspect identified
05/16/2018

(KAIR)--The name of the person arrested in connection with last week's bomb threat at Highland Community College has been made public.

According to Highland Police Chief Brandon Whetstine, the suspect is identified as 21-year-old D'Vonte Guyton.

Guyton was arrested May 10 by the North College Hill, Ohio Police Department.

According to a post on the department's Facebook page, the arrest was made after Ohio authorities were contacted by Highland Police, as investigators were able to determine that the phone number used to make the May 9 bomb threat belonged to a North College Hill resident.

Police were able to ping the phone number, tracing in to an address in the Ohio city.

The suspect, now identified as Guyton later turned himself in to North College Hill Police without incident, and was transported to the Hamilton County, Ohio Justice Center.

According to Whetstine, Guyton has waived extradition, and will be returned to Kansas, where he faces a felony charge of aggravated criminal threat.

Craig Mosher, Vice President for Institutional Advancement at Highland Community College, identified the suspect as a current online student of the college in a release issued May 11.

The bomb threat led to the evacuation of the college campus, located in the Doniphan County community of Highland, and to the postponement of finals for the students.

A search of the campus, and its buildings, by law enforcement failed to recover any explosive device.
